RFI: Anthropometric studies in school-age children

Is anyone aware of any recent anthropometric studies made in malnour-
ished school children (both primary and/or secondary age)?

Also, what are the most valuable indicators measured?

Is there any correlation (or other reason for measuring) the typical
anthropometric indicators measured for the U5 age group (such as
W//A, H//A and W//H), when assessing malnourished children who are in
primary or secondary school?

We have been asked to commence a short-term school feeding programme
in a cyclone ravaged district and need to choose the best indicators
for assessing current nutritional status and future impact.

Any suggestions would be a great help.

Sincere regards,
